Vertigo

Vertigo

Vertigo is an addictive arcade game powered by Ogre3D and BulletPhysics Engine. The game is free, released under an open source and is cross platform.

The Xenophis, a Vulcan exploratory vessel, has incidentally found the mythical sector of Firia where the planets, only reachable through warp tunnels, are told to be made of staggering ice and liquid fire. As a precautionary act, the Xenophis crew are attempting to launch interstellar probes, significantly altered to exist within the Firia atmosphere, in order to learn more of this magnificent piece of the galaxy.

However, evidence shows that the former inhabitants do not like outsiders.

You are a probe and your mission is to maneuver your way to the other end of the warp tunnel. Your probe is set with 2 shields to protect from fire and ice drones, but only 1 shield is active at a time. You have to flip shields in time to protect yourself, and you can possibly move left and right to avoid some obstacles.

Vertigo is a pure reflex game, so be quick. Coupled with a quality music score, you will quickly get lost into and want more of it. There is nothing too serious about this game. Just pure fun for quick time pass.

Features include:

  • Six different zones
  • Two types of drones to encounter:
    • Chasing drones: you can not escape these and must switch shield in time to collide
    • Duette drones: a pair of drones, one of fire and one of ice. You must move and collide with one of them, while regarding, of course, your shield
  • 4 game modes:
    • Arcade: this is the "normal" mode; your objective is to reach the last portal with your shields intact
    • Survival: virtually, you can't beat this mode, every time you enter a portal, the game will get harder and you can see how long you will last!
    • Dodgy: only one of your shields is active and flipping is not possible, you will be faced with Duette drones and you must dodge to stay alive and reach the last portal
    • Nervebreak: the rules of the game change; the drones have adapted to your shields and you must collide with every drone using the opposite shield. In other words, face fire drones with your ice shield, and ice drones with your fire shield
